"Cornerstone" received 15 votes. 2nd place was "The Hive" with 12 votes, 3rd place was "The Place" with 9 votes

We also have a new name for our Sunday night program...or do we?

  • Our Sunday Night program will remain "Underground!"

Underground received 18 votes. 2nd place was "Impact" with 16 votes, 3rd place was "Grounded" with 8 votes
