The purpose of Rainbow is to promote effective communication, leadership skills and most importantly, service to humanity. Members of Rainbow are active in their churches, schools and communities. They raise money for various charities and extend themselves in service to their community. Rainbow girls also have many fun activities and opportunities to make lifelong friendships.
Is Rainbow a religion?
NO! Rainbow is a service organization. Rainbow does, however, encourage each member to be an active participant in the church of her choice.
What are the teachings of Rainbow?
The teachings of Rainbow are non-sectarian, based on the seven lessons taught to the girls at their initiation ceremony. The lesson of Love teaches love of home and family. Religion teaches the importance of membership and active participation in the church of your choice. Nature teaches the importance of spending time in the out-of-doors. Immortality teaches us that even though our body dies our souls live on forever. Fidelity teaches the importance of loyalty to the Order and the Rainbow Girl’s family and friends. Patriotism teaches the importance of respecting the laws of our country and its flag, and Service teaches the importance of providing unselfish acts of service to our home, community, and the sponsoring Organizations of Rainbow. There are also teachings of Faith, Hope and Charity. The beautiful lessons of Rainbow guide a girl into a better life.
