Indianapolis Green Congregations works to help churches save up to 40 percent on energy bills.  A lot of times simple steps make a big difference, like turning the thermostat way down during most of the week.

Ray Wilson chairperson with Indianapolis Green Congregations says a Sunday workshop will discuss other measures. 

"It's just amazing how buildings have holes in them," says Wilson, "and you don't realize that until you start climbing up in the attics or going down in the basements."

The Using Energy Prudently workshop will offer information on other ways to save energy like changing light bulbs or insulation. 

Sunday's meeting is one in a series sponsored by Hoosier Interfaith Power and Light.  The workshop runs from 2 to 5 p.m. at First Friends Meeting, 3030 Kessler Boulevard E. Drive, on Indy's north side.
