Henry Parslow and Jasper Hawkins cleared their land out of the forest in anticipation of other joining them from England.

The foundation for a church building was laid in 1859, and the first services were held in the building in the summer of 1860.

The Catholic Mission of Saint Walburga was founded a couple of miles west of the current village of Fletcher in 1856, and a log chapel was constructed in 1858.

Other churches in Rogers today include the Redeeming Grace Lutheran Church, which is affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod and the Confessional Evangelical Lutheran Conference, and NorthRidge Fellowship, a congregation of Converge Worldwide.

Mary Queen of Peace Catholic Church was created in 2003 through the merger of Saint Walburga Catholic Church and Saint Martin of Tours Catholic Church.

Located on Territorial Road in Rogers, the Living Hope Church was planted by Emmaus Free Lutheran Church in Bloomington in 1998 and is now occupying the former Saint John's Episcopal Church on Territorial Road.
