    a growing church

    At a time when women typically have had a narrow range of choices, Mary Baker Eddy became a distinguished writer and the founder, architect, and builder of a growing church.

       Here does the word church mean Christian Science? And I found a sentence which also contains
    “a growing church” from the website:
    Please see: Harefield is a growing church with a heart for God and a passion for people. In the sentence,
    church means a party? I feel that it seems hard to understand the meaning of church.

    Thanks for your help!!!

    Re: a growing church

    Definition 4 is the operative one here for Mary Baker Eddy.

    Your other sentence is definition 5, one particular local group of Christians.
