There is mention of a church in Rothenschirmbach in the 10th Century which was dedicated to St. Pancratius. In the second half of the 19th Century the church, which can be seen today was built. The church consists of red sandstone, typical for the region of the Hornburger Sattel. In 1998, the roof was renewed as part of an overall village renewal program. Relics of the Aunjetitz culture (around 2.300 til 1.700 B.C.), including a child’s grave, which were found during excavations for the construction of the Autobahn A38 and are on permanent display in the church. Since September 2005 St. Pancratius-Church has been designated as an Autobahn church, by church elders in Magdeburg, which makes it the third Autobahn church in Saxony-Anhalt.
