Is Rainbow for Girls a religion?  NO!  The International Order of the Rainbow for Girls is a service organization.  Rainbow for Girls does, however, encourage each member to be an active participant in the church of her choice.

Local and state organizations are all around.  The local organization is called a local assembly.  The state organization is called a Grand Assembly.  The international organization is called the Supreme Assembly..
