We welcomed new member Tim Marting on December 21. Here is some information about Tim so you can get to know him better. “I grew up in St. Louis Missouri where I attended Lindbergh high school. I continued my studies and graduated from Westminster College in Fulton, Missouri. I currently work at Truman Middle School and coach the Lindbergh lacrosse team. In addition to working in the Lindbergh district I also manage and bar tend at j greenes pub on the weekends and during summers. In my free time I enjoy playing/watching sports, hanging with family and friends, and doing just about anything outdoors. I am excited to become a member here at Des Peres Presbyterian.”
