Greater Triangle Crop WalkSave the date, Sunday October 29, 2023  We are dedicating our Avent Ferry Crop Walk in memory of Rachel Gooding! Please help us support and raise money for this special Missions event! For this year’s Walk we return to downtown Raleigh. The Step off will be from First Baptist Church on Salisbury Street parking lot (GPS 176 Hillsborough Street). There is plenty of parking with an adjoining state parking lot (by Sanctuary on Hillsborough St, just past 99 N. Salisbury) and state parking deck 77 on West Edenton Street (turn left onto Edenton Street from N. Salisbury just before you reach the State Capitol). Both parking options are no charge. Please go to for information about our benefitting partners, sponsors, walk route maps, etc.

In keeping with the give back ministry, 20% of your purchase will be donated to GTA CROP Walk. The Fellowship Hall of the church will be open for dining on site or you can pick up your order and eat elsewhere.
