A section of Downtown Duluth was blocked off Sunday to make room for a few pastors to bring the glory.
The "Enter his Gates Neighborhood Glory Block Party" is a joint effort of two ministries: Enter His Gates and On Eagles' Wings. They've already had a couple of these neighborhood block parties on First Street, but this one is on Michigan Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues West.
Pastor David Markusen, of Enter His Gates, said they wanted to bring the party to a place where people have more limited access to transportation.
"So we decided we're just going to bring it close to where the people are and just gather together," he said. "Mostly just to promote a sense of family, a sense of we're all in this together, we just want to love you, folks."
Markusen said the main goal of the event, though, is to tell people God loves them.
There is another block party planned for the 100 block of East First Street on Aug. 29.
