Grace Lutheran Church Staff

We believe that the true leadership of this congregation is the Holy Spirit guiding the people of God in this place. These are some of the individuals working to make our community run smoothly:


The People of Grace Church are the ministers.  

Rev. Samantha L. Drennan is the pastor. 

Steve Ziminsky is our Organist/Choir Director. Steve, an Allentown School District music teacher, has an incredible gift to bring music to life whether 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. 

Cathy Spengler is our Hand Bell Choir Director. Cathy has been the director of the "Bells of Grace" since their beginning over 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.  She works in the office Monday - Thursday from 9 am to 3 pm.

Judy Reppert is the Office Assistant.  Judy staffs the office on Fridays from 8 am to 1 pm.  She is also 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 (together with a paid contractor).  He also performs countless other forms of repair and maintenance around the building.  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 clean and neat for worshippers each week. She also works in the kitchen at one of the local elementary schools.
