Welcome to Job's Daughters Bethel # 9
Jobs Daughters meet from 6:30 pm to 8:30 pm the 2nd and 4th Sundays of the Month!
Job's Daughters is an organization of young women between the ages of 10 and 20 and share a common bond. We have members in the United States, Canada, Australia, Brazil, and the Philippines We have fun together at activities such as swimming parties, dances, family picnics, slumber parties, miniature golf, marching in parades, travel . . . well, you get the picture. By working closely together, you will make new friends that will last a lifetime.
We also help others. Throughout the year, we perform service projects to help our community, the less fortunate, and other charities. We actively support the Hearing Impaired Kids Endowment (HIKE) Fund, which purchases hearing assistive devices for hearing impaired children. We learn leadership. By holding various offices in Job's Daughters, you will gain valuable leadership experience, be a part of a team, and learn democratic principles. Job's Daughters can qualify for various scholarships that are offered on a state-wide and a national level. All Job's Daughters are members of a local chapter called a Bethel. Members of a Bethel elect their own officers, decide their own activities, and plan their own events. In short, Job's Daughters International offers the qualities that today's young women want and need from organizations that earn their commitment . . . fun, friendship, helping others, and the chance to learn organizational and leadership skills.
What Do We Do?
Each Bethel holds meetings, fun events, service projects, fund raising ventures and various other activities as they determine. In Minnesota there are several statewide events that offer a wide variety of activities. Sports are a main attraction at the annual camp session in August. Competitions in Performing Arts and Ritual are held in the fall along with the selection of the Miss Minnesota Job's Daughter and different theme events each year.
The spring brings the annual meeting and selection of new state officers for the Daughters and includes competition in Arts & Crafts, Sewing, Scrapbooks, Baking and Writing.
Story of Job
While Job's Daughters International is in no way a religious Order, and does not preach or encourage any particular faith; the foundation of Job's Daughters International is based upon the Old Testament book of Job, with special reference to the 42nd Chapter, 15th Verse which states, "And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job, and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren."
The lessons of the story of Job teach our members that no matter what happens in their lives, good or bad, that it is important to remain faithful, strong and patient.
The purpose of Job's Daughters International is to develop girls and young women into leaders through:
Citizenship - We provide the framework through which our members actively engage in their communities.
Leadership - We provide the opportunity for girls of all ages to learn leadership and project management skills that will serve them as they grow, develop and become the leaders of tomorrow.
Friendship - We provide a safe and fun environment where strong, life-long friendships are built.
Founder Ethel T. Wead Mick started the first Job's Daughters Bethel in 1920 in Omaha, Nebraska.
