1984 by George Orwell
The works of Jules Verne
The Time Machine by H. G. Wells
Contemporary Secular Novels:
The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams
The Foundation Series by Isaac Asimov
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury
Ender’s Game by Orson Scott Card

I don't read much sci-fi, but I enthusiastically recommend the Quadrail Series by Timothy Zahn. They are completely appropriate for family and probably kids 13 and up (with mild language) and while I don't know if the author is a Christian, the world view is definitely leaning towards Christian. They make great reads.
