"The Rockingham Church of the Brethren is located in northeastern Ray County in the prosperous farming area of the Central Community known as Rockingham.
This charming, white, old fashioned, two story church was erected in 1905 with Sunday School rooms being added in 1918.
The Ladies Aid has been most active through the years, metting each week all day on Thursday quilting or sewing for a needy family. For the past forty years the ladies have sponsored an annual fish fry in early December. they are known near and far for their annual "Apple Butter making". More than 1000 quarts of cider apple butter is made outside each fall in antique open topped copper kettles.
Traditions and customs have modernized through the years but the Brethren are basically the same and proud of their early heritage."
