Giving Faqs

Here are some answers to questions you may have about giving to our church.

Is it safe to give online?

Yes. Cypress and our vendors provide the latest technology in regards to encryption and security.

From what types of bank accounts can I give?

You can give online from your bank account (ACH) or you may use your MasterCard, Visa, or Discover debit/credit card(s) for a credit card transaction.

Are there fees involved with online giving?

You will not pay any fees with your online contribution. Cypress pays all fees associated with online giving. Please keep in mind that the processing fees associated with credit cards are higher for the church than with ACH transactions.

How long will it take my contribution to process?

Within 12-48 business hours of the date you requested.

Where can I see my giving history?

To see your giving history, sign into your Giving account by clicking the "Give" option on our website or app, and select your campus. You will find the "History" option at the top of the page, which will display your cash and check gifts. For non-cash gifts, such as stocks, please reach out to

Will I receive an Annual Giving Statement for tax purposes?

Yes. Cypress will mail you a Giving Statement covering all your tax-deductible donations by January 31 of each year to use when filing your taxes for the prior year.  Statements are mailed every year by January 31 so it’s important to keep your mailing address current. If you have not received a statement by the end of January, please contact the Accounting Department at

Can I change the amount or frequency of my giving and update my payment information after I set it up online? 

Yes. You can change your contribution at any time prior to the date of your next contribution. Sign into your account using your email and password. Locate Give Now and select recurring to set up automatic giving. If you already have scheduled giving set, locate Scheduled, to update the frequency. To change the payment information, access your profile found under your name in the top-right corner. Look for a section labeled Payment Method.

I have the gift of giving. How can I do more?

The Vision in Action Team serves our church with the spiritual gift of giving. It is for those who are called and equipped to strategically give their influence, time, and finances to the Kingdom of God, accelerate our church's vision, and leave a legacy. Each member has committed to tithing and will prayerfully commit to giving over and above their tithe to impact eternity for future generations.
We believe God has called us with a specific vision to reach every child, student, and adult in our communities, throughout central Ohio and around the world with the life-changing message and power of Christ. This vision, which we are committed to until we breathe our breath and pass the baton of faith to the next generation, is supported by three specific areas in which we invest to make an Impact.

Next Gen – Kids, Students, Resident & Intern Program
