Houses of God

Romar Beach Baptist Church

Orange Beach, Ala.

The Romar Beach Baptist Church in Orange Beach, Ala., held services on Oct. 6 despite declining weather as Tropical Storm Karen churned in the Gulf of Mexico. The $7 million structure, built yards from the Gulf with reinforced concrete walls and 60-foot-deep building supports under the sand, is designed to withstand hurricanes.
