Middle School Ministry (COVID-19)

We are back in person!


Here is the summary of our COVID-19 safety plan:

  • We will be returning to a modified Friday night program from 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM & Sunday morning service from 10:45 AM to 11:45 AM. Please take some time to read over these guidelines. If you have any questions, please contact Drew Heftye at drew@camcc.net.
  • Staff, Parents, and/or students who are uncomfortable with being in groups will be excused, no questions asked. Parents will always be supported in their decision to keep students home.
  • Live-streaming on our YouTube Channel will still occur for both Fridays and Sundays with all games designed to engage students both in person and at home.
  • We will be using social media, texting, email, YouTube, and verbal announcements for up-to-date communication.  
  • Each small group will have a zoom option for their group. YouTube chat will be monitored and a part of the service to include all students.
  • Face masks are required for staff and students inside the church and all will be subject to temperature checks prior to entering the facility. 
  • Students will be asked to maintain a safe distance from other students. This means no touching for staff and students.
  • Staff will direct and help keep students socially distanced. Students may only be on campus for youth activities in the designated times unless they have specific permission from a church staff person. Siblings and others youth not in the “Middle School age” group will not be permitted on the campus during the events and must remain in their vehicles with their families.
  • All doors will be left open to avoid touching communal spaces. All students and staff must use their assigned chair and not share with others. Students will need to bring their own Bibles and electronic devices from home. If they need one, one will be provided. The student will keep the Bible.
  • We will have a drop off procedure where leaders greet, check temperatures, and direct students to the appropriate location of their activity.
  • We will discontinue offering non-prepackaged food and beverages, and we will be putting the water fountain out of order. Water bottles will be made available.
  • We are placing signage in common areas, including restrooms, for proper safety and sanitation. Hand sanitizer will be available and cleaning will be a priority.
  • We are developing a safety training video and staff will sign they have watched it.
  • All of this will be checked an hour before the meeting time. We will evaluate the safety of the facility and programs and review state guidelines on a weekly basis, and we will be using VC Emergency for up-to-date info from the local health department.


While all of these guidelines are in place, you are bringing your students at your own risk.

Thank you for checking out our page! If you are a middle school student or know one, we hope that our ministry will feel like home. Our staff (leaders) welcome you and invite you or any middle school student to our group. Please scroll down to look at our ministry times below. We provide a mid-week program and Sunday morning gathering as well as an annual summer camp experience on Catalina Island. Like us on Instagram to get a closer look at what we do in Middle School Ministry here at CamCC.

Our Middle School Ministry focuses on the opportunity for students to know and grow into their relationship with Jesus. We do this through what we call "legendary moments" and "legacy relationships". We hope to create memorable moments or "legends" that students will hold on to the rest of their lives whether it be the moment they came to know Jesus, when they surrendered their hearts in worship,  were convicted by a Biblical truth during our teaching time, or when they lost an epic food fight. Our leaders' goal is to leave a "legacy" in the student's life. Leaders pour into the lives of students inside and outside of group times. They form relationships with students that lead students closer to God and deeper into what His word says as they, too, grow deeper with the Lord. We often don't remember the words, but we remember the moments and the people, and that's what our ministry hopes to capitalize on and maybe have a little fun along the way.


10:45 AM - 12:00 PM

Our Sunday Morning Gathering is designed to support the spiritual growth of Middle School students. We provide a fun, chill environment with a mini-coffee shop, table games, and video games. Our gathering consists of a game, passionate worship, and Bible-centered teaching. 


7:00 PM - 9:00 PM

The Middle School Ministry also meets on Friday nights from 7-9 PM in the Activity Center. We have exciting games and activities, authentic worship, and family (small) groups that challenge students to love Jesus more and live it out every day.
