Our Church Leadership

Our Church thrives because of the energy and style of the people who are a part of our leadership. Here are a few of the people that make our church community special:


The People of Grace Church are the ministers. WE believe and practice that the true leadership is the Spirit guiding people of God in this place

Pastor Samantha L. Drennan is pastor. 

Steve Ziminsky is our Organist/Choir Director. Steve, an Allentown School District music teacher, has an incredible gift to bring music to life behind the organ console,  playing the piano or directing the choir. We are pleased to have Steve play to the Glory of God.

Georgie Graybill is our Junior Choir Director. A retired school music teacher, she teaches flute privately, and has directed our children's choir for more than thirty years. She is truly a blessing.

Cathy Spengler is our Hand Bell Choir Director. Cathy has been the director of our hand bells since their inception more than a decade ago. She plays in Heidelberg Hand Bells, and in her Monday through Friday life, manages facilities at Dunn and Bradstreet.

Maryann Picarello is our Parish Secretary.

Judy Reppert is the Office Assistant. Judy staffs the office on Thursdays, and is our Volunteer Coordinator, and takes minutes for Congregation Council. Until her retirement, she was the secretary at the Shoemaker Elementary School in Macungie.

Paul Zimmer is our Custodian. He cleans most of the buildings and is responsible for snow removal from walks and steps (not easy recently). Paul is an upholsterer by profession working at area businesses and colleges.

Gail Pondelek is our Sanctuary Cleaner. She makes sure the worship area is "Spic and Span" clean for guests and members each week. She works in the kitchen at one of the local elementary schools.
