In the firestorm of the culture war, no Christian wants to sound like he's against the family. Indeed, many Christians assume that what's good for the "family" is good. Period. Hence, the "Family Integrated Church" (FIC) movement has arisen, calling for churches to be family centered. By that FIC advocates mean that families should meet together for all functions of the church. That means, no separate Sunday School classes, no "children's church" and no "youth group". The church meets as families, they say. This is so important, FIC people say, it's worth forming entirely new churches on this distinctive alone.
