The Fort Sackville Project


A former bowling alley has been transformed into a beehive of activity known as the Fort Sackville Project, a ministry of Vincennes’ Thursday Church.

On any given day there are volunteers busy doing what they call “the Lord’s work” by making money to hep others, or teaching others how to support themselves.  Thursday Church is providing resources to help teach job skills to some people with its highly organized retail thrift store.  Others may learn from Alex Spurgeon and Emily Obermeyer who operate the Baker’s Alley bakery.
