Rockland Community Church is located east of Cedarville in Warren County, Va. off of US 522 at the corner of Fairground Road and Rockland Road in the village of Rockland. This church is actually a union between the old Rockland Baptist Church and Rockland Methodist Church. The old meetinghouse used by the Methodist Church still stands but is not used for worship services. The original Baptist church building burned and was later rebuilt. This is actually the building that is currently being used. This church has been attended by many different members of Jacob Sowers's descendants over the years. A little further up the road is the Rockland Cemetery where many of these people are buried. Some of these people are also descendants of Robert Mackay Sr. as well.
